Seeing as the maps are beginning to shape up I think it's best we begin naming stuff. We've already settled on naming all the city/town maps on birds, with Starling City being the starting map. What shall we theme routes on?

    Here's a list of Routes already in Pokémon: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_routes

    I'd like to stay away from numbering them 1 onwards so we have two options in my opinion. We can either use the unused route numbers 49-100 or we can follow Hoenn's scheme and do Route 201/301/901 onwards.

        Using names instead of numbers would definetly be an option but unless we come up with some really decent names, I think we should just stick to numbers. I personally don't see anything wrong with 1, 2, 3, ect as most regions use this method, mainly because they aren't 'connected'. Our region is made up of islands so I don't feel like it would make much sense they call their routes numbers after 49. It would seem like we've missed out a ton of routes.

        Also, due to the fact we have islands as our region, it might make more sense to name the routes if we can. I know we technically start somewhere, but why does the route immediately off the first town be named 1? A little unfair to those who live on a different island, right? I'm just thinking of a problem, I know, but in theory, why should our islands have a set guide/route around them?

        I vote for naming them if we can. As for town/city names, here's a few you might like:

        Albatross City
        Cormorant Town
        Dowitcher Town
        Godwit City
        Turnstone City
        Sparrow Village

          Since we have islands, i would try to split the routes into regions before numerating as i believe thats better orientation wise. As example the routes in the "east" island region are named e1, e2, e3..., while the route in the west island region are named w1, w2, w3...

              We need to name the indivudal islands so we can have characters reference them properly. Any idea for names? I'm fond of choosing a language aside from English and using translations for things like 'fire' for Moltres' island. That's how I name things but we can do it differently.

                We shouldn't do Fire, Ice, and Thunder island - it's way too much like Pokemon 2000 as it is. We could just name them numbers in another languages but mixed up a bit; that's what the birds' names themselves do.

                There's a reminder of the number of islands and what we need naming.

                  Can't we just name the 4 major islands and group the smaller ones? Some of the small ones would only have enough space to fit one city on so it wouldn't even make sense to name them. We could even just combine the smaller landmasses.

                  Also can we just name them something stupid like eeny, meeny, miny, moe?

                    I would divide it in 5 parts - The four major islands and i would also name the ocean in the middle.
